I can't believe anyone ever thought this band was good.

What a bunch of garbage, everything they ever did. I'm for real.

Unexpected as this may be, Jammer's right.

I saw them live in 2007, when Funeral was three years old, and Neon Bible had just been released. The band and the crowd was on fire. I always liked Funeral. To me they have gotten worse every album, and even the much loved The Suburbs has never been much to my liking.

Tickets are on sale today for their London shows - and I thought, well sure, I'll have a gander at them live. Then this album, and they're charging £70 a ticket. That's insane. Pass.

It took me a long time to see what Reflektor was trying to do and while overlong I came to love the great songs on it.

This though? Oh no.

Win Butler sounds more and more like Damon Albarn with every album.

I listened to like the first 6-7 tracks on this today, and I really liked it. I guess my only complaint is that the first few tracks sound a bit same-y in some areas, but I like the sound.

Upon first listen, it's not a complete disaster, though it's certainly their worst. I liked the ending run of tracks; I do think the far and away weak link of the band is Win at this point. I find myself enjoying most of the music on the record but his work on them is more of a drag on the songs. The two Infinite Content songs stop the album in its tracks.

I like this quite a lot. Listened 3-4x, and it makes me want to give reflector another chance now.

The first half of the album is solid, then it falls apart. Need more listens.

They were £80 each. That's about $100. They sold out.
